Delicious and healthy homemade miso-glazed salmon, perfect for those long summer evenings. Packed with protein, vitamins and healthy fats, this tasty dish is great for your eye health.
4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets 120–150 g each
2 tsp black and white sesame seeds
4 heads bok choy, halved and lightly cooked
1 ½ tbsp miso, preferably white miso
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp water
2 tsp soft brown sugar
2 cups short grain rice
4 tsp soy sauce
4 tsp butter
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 cups water
Place the rice in a pot with the soy sauce, crushed garlic, butter and water. Bring the mixture to boil, stir and cover. Turn heat to low and cook for 10 minutes. Remove it from heat and, without lifting the lid, allow to stand for 15–30 minutes.
Mix the miso, sesame oil, water and sugar in a bowl.
Preheat the grill to high. Place the salmon on a tinfoil-lined baking tray. Spread the miso glaze over the salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Grill the salmon 10 cm from the heat, until lightly glazed and cooked through (this should take around 8 minutes). It should give when gently pressed.
To serve, place Japanese-style rice on a plate and top each plate with a piece of salmon and 2 bok choy halves.
